The village of Hinstock is to be found in North Shropshire, just off the A41 to the south of Market Drayton. In recent years the village has grown in popularity with those who work further afield, geographically it is close to the market towns of Market Drayton and Newport, whilst Telford, Shrewsbury, Stafford, Wolverhampton and Stoke on Trent are also easy to access by road.
There may have existed at one time a Roman road through Hinstock, an archaeological evaluation of part of the area was undertaken in 1986 and there was evidence of what was thought to be a Roman road linking Hinstock with Burlington.
The village is served by a primary school, a church, a pub and a general store and post office; it has a well maintained recreation ground with football pitch, brand new five a side pitch and tennis courts. It also boasts a variety of clubs and organisations that operate from the Memorial Hall including the Women's Institute, the playgroup, the flower arranging club and painting classes whilst next door in the Jubilee room, the snooker club has 1 full sized snooker table and 1 pool table. For the more active, the village also has a lively tennis club, cricket club and annual charity funrun.
A village that attracts families who appreciate the surrounding countryside and yet wish to have the facilities of larger towns close by, Hinstock with its village social life remains a favourite with those who are fortunate to live here.
